Grants

The Trust's grant-making strategies are shaped by three core objectives; environmental education, demonstration-based restoration, and community engagement.  We look to these objectives as basic touchstones for developing our grant programs, engaging new partners, and communicating about our work.

To support these objectives, the Trust currently makes awards through ten grant programs. To learn more about the criteria for each grant program and the partners the Trust works with, select one of the following:
